Wonderful few hours with excellent tutor. Emma’s workshop is like a treasure trove and we were able to browse through her chests of treasure to select oddments that integrated to our pieces. Emma herself is a great tutor …. There when needed but gave us opportunity to play with techniques to build confidence. I will certainly be returning for more!

Response from Emma Jackson (Silversoles - Felted Textiles):

So pleased you had a great experience, was a pleasure introducing you to feltmaking. Hope to see you again soon.

I have wanted to make a felt lampshade for ages so was really delighted when this came up. It really met my expectations and more. Emma is very patient and an excellent teacher. I am so pleased with my lampshade which has had lots of positive comments already. Will be making another one soon.

Response from Emma Jackson (Silversoles - Felted Textiles):

Great to know your recent make has been so well received. I’m delighted you enjoyed the workshop and have been inspired to make another.

With Emma's patience and expertise, I came away with a rather fabulous lampshade that has pride of place in the bedroom. Her knowledge of natural breeds is vast so can advise on which wool would be most suitable depending on how much light and the pattern you require. Would definitely recommend this course for all felting abilities.

Response from Emma Jackson (Silversoles - Felted Textiles):

Thank you for your feedback Pauline, so pleased you enjoy the workshop and are so happy with your lampshade, it is beautiful.

Really enjoyed the course on Saturday, thank you for an excellent introduction to a new hobby! I attached a photo of the final 'Northern Light' picture, I was amazed at how the various embellishments 'popped out' when the fleece was finally fully dry. I may well see you on a course in the future!

This course couldnt have been better. Lovely venue, conducive to the task, lots of laughs, a really skilled, passionate tutor with answers to all felting queries, and support at all stages of constructing the scarf. So many lovely things, gorgeous colours, and a real generosity in sharing all of these, plus her skills and time. Best of all, I now have a unique beautiful scarf. Can't recommend the day more, do it, you wont be disappointed!

Response from Emma Jackson (Silversoles - Felted Textiles):

I'm so pleased that you enjoyed the course, I throughly enjoyed the day too. Thank you, Emma

Emma is excellent at teaching the process for felting and is very patient. Emma explained the different stages of the felting and was very willing to help the students. Full of inspiration and ideas how to improve your work. A lovely atmosphere in the studio - everyone willing to share their work and ideas.

The felted lampshade workshop was just great. I think Emma is a very good teacher....patient, attentive, helpful and gives clear instructions. The photos she took as we worked will be a useful reminder of the techniques involved. Her enthusiasm for all things felting is infectious and I look forward to attending another felting day in the future. Thanks Emma!

I only attended the second half of the lampshade course but I have been to one of Emma's felting courses before and am booked onto another later this month. She is a very talented felt maker and presents the courses clearly and with a great atmosphere. We were given handouts and photos to remind us of the process. I think the price is very reasonable and the atmosphere is great.

Emma's pod workshop was a really enjoyable morning. The instructions and demonstrations are clear and thanks to the detailed handouts I feel confident that I will be able to make another felt pod at home.
Emma is incredibly knowledgeable and has an amazing selection of wools and colours available to use.
I am really pleased with the pod that I made.
Thank you Emma.

What an excellent experience. I am thrilled with my lampshade. Emma made us feel so welcome and her garden studio is beautiful. She gave us plenty of advice and guided us through each stage of making the felt and constructing the lampshade with patience and skills. I have a limited amount of felt making experience, but this didn't matter as Emma's support, advice and encouragement helped me bring my ideas to life. Thank you Emma - brilliant workshop!
